11:4012:30 pm Syllabus: Schedule,
assignments, and lectures In the fall semester of 2017 there will be three
sections of the course MA 527: one regular session
with 70 seats that meets in a studio room where
every lecture will be taped on streaming
video, one "on campus distance learning"
section (ONC) that has access to the streaming
videos and one true distance learning section
(EPE) with students from all over the country and
the world. In this class we will study several of the major
areas of mathematics that are useful in
engineering, including linear algebra, ordinary
and partial differential equations, Laplace and
Fourier transforms. Information for
oncampus distance learning students: Detailed instructions can be found here. Two Midterms will be given as common evening exams for the oncampus students attending the live class and the ONC students. The dates of the Midterm exams are: Mon, Oct 2, 2017 6:307:30 p.m. Phys 114 Wed, Nov 8, 2017 6:307:30 p.m. LILY 1105 The Final Exam will be given as common final exam for the oncampus students and the ONC students. The date will be during final exam week and will be announced once it is set by the registrar. The offcampus distance learning students (EPE) will take all the exams remotely with a proctor.
Course grading
will be based on 2 midterms, a final, and regular
homework. Each midterm will be worth 100 points,
the final exam 150 points and the homework 100
points for a total of 450 points. The lowest
two homework scores will be dropped, but in
return, late homework will not be accepted. Important: In the event of a major campus emergency, course requirements, deadlines, and grading percentages are subject to changes that may be necessitated by a revised semester calendar or other circumstances beyond the instructor's control. Information about such changes will be posted on this web page.
